In today’s society, we as writers are trained from an early age to reach a set objective by any means necessary. But when looking back on this concept, aren’t we missing the whole point of completing the assignment in the first place? In this paper, I will adopt this notion of starting a piece of writing without a specific end result in mind, in the hopes of discovering myself as a writer and developing a powerful paper in the process.
From Mind Tools, I came up with my first intervention, the basis, a To-Do List. The list is essentially a written paper to prioritize tasks written in order of its importance and urgency. When used effectively, it can eliminate negative stress and help with focus, increasing productivity.

At the beginning, I was blindly listing all the current tasks at hand, and felt even more stress knowing I had so much to do.

Sommer’s state at the very end that “Good writing disturbs: it creates dissonance. Students need to seek the dissonance of discovery, utilizing in their writing, as the experienced writers do, the very difference between writing and speech-the possibility of revision.” I had thought that scholarly writing was the importance of writing something that could make an impact that others and revision was important yet at the very end of Sommer’s article, she states that good writing should disturbs and students must write in their own eyes and sense and be in dissonance. Thinking about what Sommer’s said made me realize that she made a great point because having a good written essay means having dissonance so the reader can think about the writing’s
Through the attempt of writing these personal essays, with the help of my teacher and the materials made available to me, I can affirmatively say that I feel more confident as a writer and as an editor. I say that because I feel self-aware to an extent to be able to see the major flaws in my personal essays and being able to edit them to produce better quality writings. A significant development in my writing was to acknowledge the “Show not tell” phrase and implement it in my personal essays. This particular rule has helped me out majorly focus on deploying the five essential human senses which include sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. Deploying this sensory language has further enabled me to “show” my audience what I intend to communicate to them.
My skills for writing are not where I want them to be, but if I feel like I can better respond critically to other individuals points of views. There are a countless number of things I need to work on, but I can say I am still getting better overtime. Taking the writing 102 course made me view writing as less of a burden to me.

There’s more freedom so I can also thing about what the author is trying to say or reveal to his or her readers.
English writing 101 I was able to fully understand how to fix these problems for those essays and in the future. In my Self-Inventory Essay it is very noticeable that my organization is a problem. It is visible that I don’t have good transitions into and out of each paragraph; first off I use “my first strength”, “my second strength” which are very plan and simple. In my Comparative Analysis Essay we can wee that I have come up with better transitions to make the whole essay seem more organized, for example I used more specific transitions like “In Amy Tans Mother Tongue” and for the paragraph after it I used “This shows that the” which make it flow better and be more concise. In my Self-Inventory
I found out that I need to develop my writing skills more, improve the organization of my ideas and always pay attention to what is being ask in the problem. I wished that I gave more time practicing my speeches, I was not lazy nor slacking but I think I settled. I know I could have done better. However, I feel that I'm accomplished, I gained confidence in speaking in public. The speech class thought me how to be a listener, because if you ask me, I will rather go home after I spoke each meeting.
As a "writer" I 've found my writing style to be more of a put together flourish of words and thoughts that in another 's opinion might seem like it never left the drafting stage (besides the few grammatical edits and big words to make it seem like it was written by someone smart). I went through a stage of writing in purely second person, and because of that I lost the ability to respect the need of more emotional descriptiveness.
